“We are actively working with hotel chains on specific applications as well as on new, competitive functionalities for both hoteliers and guests to leverage the numerous possibilities of employing Smartphones in the hotel space.”

Swisscom Hospitality Services is a subsidiary of Swisscom (Switzerland) Ltd, which recently announced it has increased the customer base for its IPTV service ‘Bluewin TV’ by 96% in the year to September 2009.
